Sale of second-hand texts/study guides 2010
School Matters: Posted 15-12-09 Deadline - No Deadline
Monday 1st February (first Monday back at school): 9am to 9.30am in the Hall. This will be an opportunity for you to sell any leftover HSC texts and all your preliminary year texts and study guides to the new Year 11s. Average prices per book should be $10, $15, $20, $25 OR $30 so sellers should have money to provide change and be realistic in setting prices or risk getting stuck with their books. Bring lots of $5 and $10 notes to school on the day and not $50 notes. Put the date in your phone or diary as this will be your last chance to get some money back.

Early Offers and Receiving more than 1 uni offer!!
Universities: Posted 4-12-09 Deadline - No Deadline
I mentioned earlier this year that it is possible for students to receive more than uni offer if they juggle offers and acceptances well. It is possible for a student to receive up to 3 offers from universities if you plan it right. This will give you more choice in January ie your dream course or your backup course or a place at uni if you get a very low ATAR. So if you have received an early entry offer from a university, my advice (and that of UAC) is to to accept your offer and make it your number 1 preference by the date in the letter (eg UNE 10th Dec). This you can then then accept, defer or decline if you receive a better offer. Then, once you get your ATAR, change your preferences again for the Main and subsequent round offers. This will not affect the first offer.
